FindLaw Answers User Question of the Day

Bored at work?  Put your Greedy smarts to use! Users of the FindLaw Answers message boards have questions, and they need (free) answers.  In today's featured question, one user suggests a creative way to raise cash in today's uncertain economy, while avoiding the pesky legal obstacles surrounding the sale of human organs:

I would like to donate one of my organs.  I would be off work for a while and the way things are everybody could use a little bit more money.  Is it legal to sell a TV, or a lamp, something along those lines, to the recipient or the family of the recipient of my organs for a substantial amount of money?  I know that buying and selling organs is against the law but technically I am not selling and they would not be buying my organs.  It would be some other material possession of mine.
